Install dies at waiting for hardware to init - sorta

Attempting to install F9 I386 on a system with two HighPoint
RocketRaid 2220 8-Port devices. During the very first part of the
install (installing from a USB DVD-ROM) the install hangs for ~10
minutes on the waiting for hardware to initialize. Once done it pops
up with a messing asking me to define which driver to use for the
install media, it can't see/find any devices, even the MB IDE/SATA or

I'm guessing it gets really confused during the hardware init somehow.
The first part of the install works, just forgets where it was
installing from!

Any work-a-rounds or is this a bug? I'd like to learn how to do this
without pulling the HighPoint cards for the install?


All of my bits are free, are yours?
